What Have I Done?

Friday, March 03, 2006
I just hit SEND on an e-mail to Samhain publishing containing a query and synopsis, with DUDE (aka NOT QUITE DEAD) firmly attached.

I feel green.

Please, please read any contract you might get as a result of your courage to submit. And hope you're not green for long! Good luck and, Sela. Don't sign over your print publishing rights to an electronic publisher. ;-)

LOL Alexandra. Believe me -- dh won't let me sign anything he hasn't personally vetted! And I've done my research. Thus far, I've heard only good things about Samhain. I also have several buddies who are on their roster, so I'll be asking their opinions as well. I take career moves slowly and seriously. Thanks so much for looking out for me!

Hi Sela, Good luck! I signed as you know very recently with Samhain and so far I'm really happy. The contract is fully negotiable and I thought extremely fair.

Woohoo, Sela!! I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that you get a speedy response!

I'm green because I checked in on a Harl submission. I fully expect to be a putrid puke color by Monday, lol.

Wishing you luck! (And yup, I found the contract to be VERY fair!)

Deep Breaths and lots of chocolate are the key. :)
Good luck!

Triple crossing everything for you! Way to go! Good luck with the green... At least it's a pretty color. Although it's not entirely a natural skin color, unless your a writer making submissions...

Good luck!
